A new support package has been announced by the Scottish Government to provide support to those who have been displaced by the ongoing war.

If there are updates, including on the UK Government’s immigration approach, we will update this webpage, so please check this page regularly.

The University of Dundee unequivocally condemns the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation and calls for a peaceful solution that avoids further bloodshed and tragedy.

We are keen to support students from Ukraine who wish to study at the University of Dundee whether you have applied already or not. We also have several funding and support schemes in place, depending on your status as explained on this page.

We have reached out to all our current students from Ukraine and neighbouring countries to offer practical support and advice.

Ukrainian nationals

If you:

  • are a Ukrainian national (passport or residency documentation)
  • were residing in Ukraine on or immediately before 1 January 2022 (including if you have now left Ukraine)

then:

  • your fee will be the equivalent of the fee charged to Scottish students
  • your Fee Status Assessment will remain as International, as you may still have to follow visa and other associated processes as an International applicant

Once you arrive in Dundee

You may be able to apply for SAAS (Student Awards Agency Scotland) funding which will support you throughout your studies if you are eligible and have applied to any of the following visa schemes:

  • Homes for Ukraine
  • Ukraine Family
  • Ukraine Extension

Full information will be provided by SAAS.

Additional support will be provided if you are unable to access academic transcripts or English language support.

UK Nationals who were studying in Ukraine

If you are a UK National who was studying in Ukraine, have had your studies disrupted, and have since returned to the UK:

  • you will be classified as a Scottish or Rest of UK student based on standard fee status guidelines
  • you should apply via UCAS or Clearing
  • you can apply for funding from SAAS or the Student Loans Company as a standard Scottish/Rest of UK student

Additional support will be provided if you are unable to access academic transcripts.

Non-UK, Non-Ukrainian nationals who were studying in Ukraine

If you are a Non-UK, Non-Ukrainian national who was studying in Ukraine and have since returned to your home country, or are currently living outside of Ukraine:

  • you will be assessed as International and will follow the process of an ordinary International applicant
  • you will need to pay standard International fees
  • the Humanitarian Scholarship is an available option where individuals have obtained asylum or refugee status.

Additional support will be provided if you are unable to access academic transcripts or English language support.

We understand that it may be difficult for you to access academic transcripts or English language proficiency tests at the moment. We will do what we can to support you with this.

For transfers from a Ukrainian university

It is important to give as much information about what you have studied already so that we can review the modules you have completed and ensure we match you with the most appropriate course.

We will also have to assess your level of English language.

If we are unable to offer you a place on the course you have selected to study, we will support you to find an appropriate match.
